Sony Xperia V review: Bond’s wetsuit

 

It won't be long before those full-HD five-inchers start stealing the show and the older Xperia generation should be preparing for life in their shadow. It doesn't mean though that the Xperia V cannot hope for a good time.

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 42.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; LTE Cat3 DL 100 Mbps UL 50 Mbps ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit Reality LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine 2;...

No JellyBean at launch ; Relatively modest battery capacity ; Video recording fails to impress ; No hardware shutter key ; Comes across as overpriced

We're obviously reviewing the Xperia V at a time when the eyes of the Sony faithful are set elsewhere. It's been a year since the Japanese went solo and, although they've blown hot and cold thus far, they seem to have found their pace. With a couple of...

Sony might not be one of the top manufacturers of phones currently (at least in the US), but how does its new, waterproof device stack up? Josh is here to give you the rundown.

Sony Xperia V review

 

A water-resistant, 4G capable smartphone

Decent screen ; Playstation certified ; NFC ; 4G

ICS not the slickest ; Not available in UK ; Waterproof worry

The Sony Xperia V is a respectable mid- to high-end smartphone and as long as the 4G connectivity doesn't drain the battery and the water resistance tag doesn't let us down in our full review, it looks set to be a strong contender in the LTE market.

Sony Xperia V

 

Sony has a good thing going with its latest smartphones. We've seen it with the Xperia Z and Tablet Z, now it's going mid-range via the V.

Waterproof, good value for money, 4.3" screen, LTE enabled

Sony includes the navigation buttons onscreen, lens not as wide as we would like, volume rocker a bit small
